    KIN is sold at Barneys, um, MAC, and Uncle Otis, that I know of. However, it is the brainchild of Sydney Mamane, who sells the line through his own store, Sydney's, in Toronto. www.shopsydneys.com The modeling and photography is not as expert as at Aloharag, but you've always got to look past the presentation, in e-tailing, since digital presentation of fashion is still in utero, really.

    Why? Any other recommendations. I really need to update my closet, need more pieces: sweaters, shirts, t shirts, pants.

    Biggest mistake you can make is rushing your purchases because you feel you need to update now. Buy one piece at a time, the pants don't look that great but I don't know what you like. The sweater is just ok.

    Looks like you want to go for snowman lite? I'd say for standard stuff look at gitman vintage, our legacy, stuff like that. You really don't need a lot in terms of pants just get a pair of apc ns and call it a day.

    Have to agree with Jet. If you are just looking to update your wardrobe, I'd get some pullovers from SNS Herning, which, at a lower price, are a better value proposition, and better known quality, than AR. They actually have the naval sweater that has interesting should detail, not unlike the AR piece, and in a variety of colors. I like the amalgan sweaters as well, which are new for this season. Tees - go to Forward, Revolve, and Yoox, and pick your poison. They are cheap and plentiful. And if you have a tee that really "stands out" chances are it's either 1) overdesigned or 2) you just bought a blouse. The pants are decent, if you like sweatpants, but honestly, Wings+Horns offers a similar cut for less. The make is not quite as good (placement of seams not as though out, et.., , but the material is more durable, which, for sweatpants, is more important, imo.

    Appreciate the advice. I am just as much updating as starting out. Wardrobe is fairly sparse...

    KIN is my favorite house brand as well, was just chatting with sydney today. Gave me half off for the last pair of m.a+ one piece derby as well. KIN has an interesting pair of 5 pocket pants this season, great fabric and construction.

    What's the deal with Comme des Garcons' polyester products? I was always under the impression that polyester is a "bad" material to use. Am I mistaken? Does CdG use special, high quality polyester?

    Educate me, please.

    GQ keeps trying to convince people that turtlenecks look good. No, they don't. They look good on Malcolm X and b&w movie characters. Please don't wear them.

    I think they can look good if they're really bulky roll-overs (maybe with some fisherman-weave) under a peacoat. But that's about it

    Also, if you own some $10,000,000,000 estate and ride horses to kill time, you could prolly get away with it
